Alternative Hardware-in-the-Loop Platforms

Code generation, compiler and processor requirements, precompiled libraries

You can generate code from your Simscape™ and Simulink® models for specific real-time operating systems using Simulink Coder™ and Embedded Coder®. To save time during the build process, precompile the static run-time libraries that Simscape and its add-on products provide for supported compilers.


Requirements for Using Alternative Platforms

Follow the recommendations for minimum hardware, software, and compiler specifications to deploy your Simscape model for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation using a custom standalone application.

Extending Embedded and Generic Real-Time System Target Files

Use the Target Language Compiler to generate custom source code for performing hardware-in-the-loop using an alternative platform.

Precompiled Static Libraries

Precompiled libraries are provided for supported compilers.

Initialization Cost

Learn how to avoid CPU overloads during initialization when you use an alternative platform for hardware-in-the-loop simulation.
